New Specification for Highway Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) systems Used for Automated Vehicle Weight Enforcement

1. Scope

User requirements and test methods, including classification, performance, and calibration testing requirements for WIM systems used for automated vehicle weight enforcement


gross vehicle weight; vehicle class; violations; tolerance; WIM sensors; axle load


2021 legislation has been passed in the state of New York to allow for up to 16 highway WIM systems to be used within discrete portions of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway to enforce vehicle weight restrictions. This new standard addresses the testing and performance requirements needed to certify these systems, and paves the way for the implementation of future WIM systems used for automated vehicle weight enforcement within the United States.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
